UK seller moneyworx11 sells massive fake capacity flash drive

leave a comment »

moneyworx11 Yet again a seller in the uk has listed a non-existent capacity drive. Can we stress yet again that there is NO SUCH THING AS A 120GB USB FLASH DRIVE

The seller, moneyworx11, may be a deliberate fraudster as buyer IDs are being kept private.

Is Kingston And Sony Making Cheap 16GB USB Flash Drives? A Sony MicroVault DataTraveler Wholesale $11 US

leave a comment »

Sony and Kingston, are they joining forces to make a Sony MicroVault DataTraveler usb flash drive? Yes you can buy them wholesale. The best of both worlds Sony and Kingston. Their famous usb flash drive names: MicroVault and Datatraveler.

Of course there is no such thing. Kingston did not make it and Sony did not make it. FlashChipTutor is convinced they are not the ones to come up with such a hybrid. Of course it is just more fake flash spin. You can buy them cheap too. These 16GB fakes are selling at less then the cost of an grade A 8GB flash drive chip!

Naturally you can expect to NOT receive the advertised capacity. This the famous little fake that sports the Sony name and the Microvault brand. SOSFakeFlash doesn’t have a true capacity on record higher than 512MB so far. It can be just about any size you want it to be, fake flash reprogrammers are happy to oblige so long as they get their cut. The bigger you want it to be, the more they will charge you. This little counterfeit has been sold in sizes as high as 500GB! There are no usb flash pen sticks on the market for consumers higher than 64GB. This famous counterfeit does a lot of damage to buyers data. If you want to lose your precious files, buy this drive. If you are a reseller who wants to cheat people and then be chased from pillar to post by angry buyers and have the police knocking at your door this is thing to sell.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
